RSS icon Comments on Fired Officer Applies to Police Review Board


Ha, see. Powers committed nonviolent crimes, which Seattle has an abundance of. The cops only chase down violent crimes, and they seem to do pretty well with that. But they're too overstretched to deal with the less serious stuff, and it pushes Seattle up to one of the worst cities for nonviolent crime.

I have data on this. I made graphs. They're awesome.

Wow. I really for one minute honestly thought about responding to elenchos. Silly me. Yeah, I know, don't feed the trolls.

He probably wouldn't be more biased than any other cop.

I see.

Would he like a stadium with that?

I don't know - I think his application ought to be taken seriously by the City Council.

After all, when it comes to police misconduct, it takes one to know one.

I'll send you the data. Click and look for yourself.

Do trolls make graphs? That's some serious trolling.

huh. so cops are fired and snubbed for doing coke, but repeated complaints against one of violence and/or abuse of authority and it's "thanks for your input. we'll be sure to put it in his file. now get lost." i see how that works.

a cop who was railroaded by other cops!!! what a story!!! interesting. well, i'm not sure current cops want that kind of representative on the board. but because of his experience, he might actually be a good advocate. on the other hand, it clearly sounds like he might be a bit too biased in support of cops over those who have the power to discipline them.
